Great opportunity to get into on-the-rise East Somerville!

I don’t know what it is about all our local “Easts” that I love so much — East Cambridge, East Boston, and of course, East Somerville are some of my absolute favorite neighborhoods. So I am thrilled to get to hang out this weekend in East Somerville, at my great new listing…

58 Oliver Street, U3, Somerville

58 Oliver Street, Unit 3, Somerville

Wish you’d bought in Union Square five years ago? Now’s your chance to get into Somerville’s next hot neighborhood — East Somerville — while you can still get a great value! This vibrant neighborhood, located within a mile of both Union Square and Assembly Row, and just over a half mile to the T at Sullivan Station (and only .3 miles to the proposed Brickbottom Station) offers an amazing diversity of restaurants along newly-renovated Broadway, and has a great community spirit with frequent festivals and neighborhood events. This charming top-floor home is move-in ready and offers a flexible layout that can be used as either a one- or two-bedroom unit (currently used as a one-bed), with many great features including eco-friendly bamboo floors, renovated kitchen and bath, central air and windows on four sides providing plenty of natural light. Also comes with private basement storage and laundry, common front porch and TWO DESIGNATED PARKING SPACES! Well-run, pet-friendly association.

Year built/converted: 1890/2003 Bedrooms: 1-2 Bathrooms: 1 Living area: 853 SF +/- per Master Deed Parking: 2 designated spaces! Condo fee: $140 / month 2017 taxes: $1,760 with residential exemption

My favorite things about East Somerville:

  1. The great new wide sidewalks and trees along Broadway, perfect for an evening stroll to dinner at one of the amazing restaurants

  2. Speaking of restaurants… Fasika, LaBrasa, Fat Hen, Vinny’s, Taco Loco

  3. Tons of neighborhood festivals, including the Foodie Crawl — one of Somerville’s most popular events where you can sample food from more than a dozen local restaurants, and enjoy the Aeronaut-sponsored beer garden

  4. The cool live/work Brickbottom Artist’s Building and Open Studios, plus the pottery haven Mudflat Studio — offering classes, workshops, and studio rental for professional clay artists

  5. Seasonal Farmer’s Market in Union Square—offering fresh produce, herbs, artisinal yummies and live music May – November

  6. Great shopping at nearby Assembly Row

  7. Easy access to the Orange, Green & Red Lines and direct bus routes to Harvard & HBS, Central, Davis, Union, Inman, Lechmere, Sullivan, Assembly Row, Fenway, and Longwood!

Here are some great pix from the neighborhood — many of them courtesy of East Somerville Main Streets, an AMAZING neighborhood / business association…
